Art Talk: Maria Kapajeva and Test Shooting

Welcome to an Art Talk around the screening of UK-active Estonian artist Maria Kapajeva´s video work Test Shooting (11 min). Her video is part of a larger art project around the phenomenon of Russian mail-order brides. Kapajeva literally copies instructions from a Russian match-making site on how to perform as “the best match”. In this video she however chooses to subject her male model to this gendered choreography.

The artist is not able to attend but we have invited Tomas Gunnarsson, also known as Genusfotografen, who is a photographer, journalist and gender studies scholar. He will give a short lecture on gender and image stereotyping.

The Art Talk is part of a CEMS course led by Emma Stenström, and therefore we do not have as many places as usual. First come, first serve – but remember, you must sign up to artinitiative@hhs.se and receive confirmation. Lunch will be served.
